Porcelain veneers are extremely thin coverings of ceramic that are bonded to the front of the patients’ tooth to create a new smile.

Porcelain veneers are placed over the front of teeth that appear too small or large, slightly discolored or simply are not cosmetically pleasing to the patient.

When cared for properly, your veneers will last you a long time. This patient had recently replaced her front four crowns.

The patient was not pleased with the appearance of her short, square teeth. She wanted beautiful teeth while maintaining a natural appearance. By using a combination of minor gum surgery, crowns and veneers, we were able to achieve excellent natural aesthetics.

For many patients, teeth may have chipped, become discolored or are slightly crooked. For the majority of these patients, porcelain veneers can prove to be the perfect solution. Unfortunately, too many veneers have been placed poorly leading people to think that they look fake.

We pay close attention when placing porcelain veneers to the patients surrounding teeth and gums in order to design each veneer to complement the overall smile. The result is a beautiful, attractive new smile.

The procedure begins with the preparation of the tooth. This entails removing the discolored or unsightly portion of the tooth and precisely shaping the tooth in preparation for the new veneer.

Once we have shaped the tooth, we will scan the teeth. This digital image will be emailed to the lab where your new restoration will be crafted.

While the new veneers are created, we will provide you with a temporary restoration. Our temporary restorations will resemble your natural teeth so that you can continue with your daily life without worrying about a missing or incompatible tooth.

During your second visit to the office, we will proceed with the placement of your final restoration. The veneers will be fitted comfortably into the mouth. We will make every effort to ensure that the new tooth feels exactly like one of your natural teeth.

The final step in the process will be to bond the new veneers into your mouth, leaving you with a beautiful smile.
